Solutions:
1). c) Let the salary of A be x
Therefore Salary of B = 687.5 × x/100 = 6.875x
And salary of C= 243.75 × x/100 = 2.4375x
Since (6.875 + 2.3475)x = 29800 => x = 29800/9.3125 = 3200
Therefore Salary of B is 6.875 × 3200 = 22000

2). b) Let the second amount deposited be x.
Therefore 40000 × 5/100 + (x × 10)/100 = (40000 + x) × 6/100 => 2000 + x/10 = 2400 + 3x/50 => x/10 – 3x/50 = 400 => 2x/50 = 400 => x = 10000
Therefore, total = 40000 + 10000 = 50000

3). c) 8 men’s 1 day’s work = 1/30
11 women’s 1 day’s work = 1/45
Therefore (8 men + 11 women)’s 1 day work = 1/30 + 1/45 = 5/90 = 1/18
Therefore, (8 men + 11 women)’s can complete the work in 18 days

4). a) Let the number be 10x + y
=> 10x + y – 10y – x = 27 => x – y = 3 ---------> (1)
X = y + (y × 60)/100 => x = 8y/5
5x – 8y -------> (2)
Equ (1) × 5 – equ (2) => 3y = 15 => y = 5
Therefore x = 8 and the number = 85

5). c) Let the present age of A be x and that of B be y.
=> y = 180x/100 = 9x/5 => 9x = 5y ------> (i)
(x – 20)/(y – 20) = 1/5 => 5x – 100 = y – 20
From equ (i) and (ii) x = 25, y = 45
Therefore Difference = 45 – 25 = 20
